Is there any flower seeds that can be sown now and will flower this year? Thanks.
Last night, Monty Don was sowing annual cornflowers and calendula. If you have a gap it has to be worth a try. Some sown now such as antirrhinum, will not flower this year but will get an early start for next year if we have a mild winter again. Other than that, time to sow wallflowers for next year.
You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things.
Calendula - when I planted young plants in early spring, they went mad, they ended huge and a real
show stopper. And now they have self sown and I have more young plants emerging ! But they were massive, they took over my garden !
Unfortunately when we had heavy rain for days it completely battered them, so I had to pull them up (saved the seeds) but found lots of young plants from their prolific self seeding !!!
